Billiat: Chiefs can't celebrate like league is done


Kaizer Chiefs star Khama Billiat has insisted that he and his teammates will not get ahead of themselves after last weekend's impressive win over Swallows FC.

Billiat played a starring role for Chiefs on Sunday, scoring twice and assisting another as the Amakhosi romped to a 3-1 away win over Soweto rivals Swallows FC in the DStv Premiership.

The 31-year-old was understandably pleased following the weekend's victory but warned that there was still work to be done before the club could start celebrating.

"We are professional enough," he told Kaizer Chiefs' media team. "We used to celebrate when we were young right?

"Now, we celebrate in a professional way. We don’t need to be out there celebrating like the league is finished. We have to stay focused.

"We have got a strong squad and I always trust my boys, whether I play or don’t play we are positive about the result and we work hard like we always do.

"I am happy for the team and I am happy that we keep getting stronger and stronger. We understand each other and the importance of collecting the maximum points that we needed."

After an indifferent start to the season, Chiefs' form has improved in recent weeks and the Glamour Boys now occupy the second position in the league standings.

Billiat is not looking at the table, however, and is instead focussing on building on the form which has seen the club win five of their last seven domestic matches.

"It’s not easy, but we are not looking at the table," he added. "Right now, we want to focus on the things that the coaches want us to do and focus on getting the basics right.

"This will always help us get the good results and performances and then we will look at the table afterwards. We will stay focused and humble and we keep on working hard for the team."
